- High yields per surface area with performance classes of up to
280 Wp, thanks to record-breaking cell technology
- 25-year performance guarantee
- Meets GSE conditions in Italy

Mainz, August 26, 2011 - Next year, SCHOTT Solar AG will be
expanding its portfolio to include a new high-performance solar
module that combines impressive performance with attractive
appearance. The new SCHOTT PERFORM MONO is based on a unique new cell
technology that enables record-level performances: the world's first
six-inch solar cells with 20.2 percent efficiency. The SCHOTT PERFORM
MONO includes performance classes of up to 280 Watt peak and is
scheduled to hit the market in Europe during the second quarter of
2012. This module is of particular interest for the Italian market
due to the fact that it will meet the requirements that apply to the
higher feed-in tariff there. The new, top-of-the-line product from
SCHOTT Solar will be unveiled for the first time ever at the EU PVSEC
in Hamburg from September 5 to 9, 2011 (hall B5, booth A37). Here, an
overview of the preliminary technical data on the SCHOTT PERFORM

- Cell type: 60 monocrystalline cells, 156 x 156 mm
- Front panel: low-iron 3.2 mm solar glass
- Backside panel: foil
- Performance classes: up to 280 Wp
- Cell efficiency: approx. 20 percent
- Weight: approx. 20 kg
- Frame: 50 mm, black

And still, it isn't only the values contained in the product
datasheet that are likely to attract attention, but also the
attractive look of the SCHOTT PERFORM MONO. It looks extremely
elegant, thanks to its dark mono cells in combination with a black
frame. Furthermore, its high resistance to weathering when exposed to
wind, storms, ice and snow (tested for pressure and suction loads of
5,400 Pascal based on the IEC standard) clearly translates into

reliable performance on top of the roof for many years to come. As
with all its glass-film modules, SCHOTT Solar will be offering a
25-year linear performance guarantee.

Top R&D performance put into practice

"The new SCHOTT PERFORM MONO is a prime example of how R&D and
product management go hand-in-hand at SCHOTT Solar," says Stefan
Hergott, head of product management at SCHOTT Solar AG. The company
became the world's first manufacturer to produce a monocrystalline
screen-printed solar cell in the industrial format of 156 x 156 mm
that offers 20.2 percent efficiency l/news/top-news/article/more-than-20-percent/> .

Thanks to the SCHOTT PERFORM MONO, this research breakthrough is
now being put into practice.

utilized. And it's for exactly that reason that SCHOTT Solar produces
important components for photovoltaic applications and solar energy
plants. In the photovoltaic industry, the company is one of the few
integrated manufacturers of crystalline silicon wafers, cells and
modules. In thin-film technology, SCHOTT Solar also describes itself
as an advanced supplier due to having over twenty years of
experience. And in the production of receivers for solar power
plants, SCHOTT Solar sees itself as a market and technology leader.
The receivers are key components in large-scale power plants that
generate electricity from solar energy centrally on the basis of
parabolic trough technology and are able to supply entire cities with
power. SCHOTT Solar has production facilities in Germany, the Czech
Republic, the USA and Spain. The innovative power and technological
competence of the company date back to the late 1950s. SCHOTT Solar
is a wholly owned subsidiary of the international SCHOTT technology
group. SCHOTT develops special materials, components and systems for
